Due to an overwhelming response to the ELCA Rostered Ministers Gathering and limitations on space, we are no longer able to accept new registrations.

This has been a remarkable response to the first-ever gathering of this kind for the ELCA. We give thanks for your interest. Please accept our deepest apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Due to this positive response, we hope this type of gathering may be offered again in the near future.

For Federal Chaplains:

The ELCA Bureau for Federal Chaplaincy Ministries requires all chaplains to attend the annual ecclesiastical professional development training in order to remain in good standing for endorsement unless prevented by military deployment or organizational mission requirements. This annual chaplain training is known as the Chaplain Education and Training Event. It provides a time for our military (both active duty and reserves), Veterans Affairs and Bureau of Prison chaplains a time for worship, spiritual renewal, continuing education, best practices, networking and fellowship. This training also allows our chaplains to maintain the highest level of proficiency in pastoral care ministry.
